ZFX Analyst’s Predictions
The US and Switzerland economy is stronger for both from fundamental area. We already discuss about interest rate hike for US earlier and several economy aspects show a positive sign for CHF. But from the technical analysis, we can confirm that this pair is already broke the daily resistance and might continue bullish to the next daily resistance. But we might see a higher USDCHF rate if the Fed would execute the tapering soon on March with interest rate hike. This pair might continue bullish until first quarter of 2022.
